UofL's Ruth Carrico selected for National Nurse Fellowship
Date:8/16/2011

Ruth Carrico, Ph.D., R.N., F.S.H.E.A., C.I.C., an associate professor at the School of Public Health and Information Sciences, University of Louisville, has been named one of just 21 Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) Executive Nurse Fellows for 2011. Carrico joins a select group of nurse leaders from across the country chosen to participate in this world-class, three-year leadership development program designed to enhance nurse leaders' effectiveness in improving the United States health care system.

With more than 30 years' experience in health care, Carrico has focused her nursing practice on infection prevention in the health care and public health sectors, and is board-certified in infection control. She has received training in health care epidemiology and public health at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in conjunction with the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University and the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America. Carrico has authored or co-authored six books, as well as numerous peer-reviewed manuscripts, abstracts, posters, e-learning modules, and book chapters.

"Ruth is very deserving of this honor," said Richard Clover, M.D., dean, UofL School of Public Health and Information Sciences. "She is a leader in the field of infection prevention and control and was recently appointed to the Healthcare Infection Control Practices Advisory Committee (HICPAC) to help advise the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)."

Begun by RWJF in 1998, the RWJF Executive Nurse Fellows (ENF) program strengthens the leadership capacity of nurses who aspire to shape health care locally and nationally. The program will provide Carrico and her colleagues with coaching, education and other support to strengthen their abilities to lead teams and organizations in improving health and health care. The ENF program is loc
